|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
Compulsory for institutions in England. Compulsory for all institutions in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that choose to make a return. Not required for institutions in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that choose not to make a return.
This field records the percentage of a department that maps to an academic cost centre, i.e. what percentage of a department maps to a particular cost centre.
Not all departments will map to one academic cost centre, and not all academic cost centres may feature staff from only one department.
For that reason, the data collected for each academic cost centre/department mapping includes:
AcademicCostCentres.PROPACC exists to identify instances where departments do not map into a single cost centre.
In the example below, there are two departments and two cost centres. The 'History' cost centre is composed only of staff from the Department of Ancient History. The 'Classics' cost centre, however, is made up of staff from the Department of Ancient History and also the Department of Classical Studies on a 5:10 basis:
The value in this field can be recorded to one decimal place and must be between 0 and 100. The length of this field is 5 characters, however data may be returned with or without leading zeros or the decimal place (e.g. 005.0 or 5.0 or 5).
For those institutions in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland wishing to make a return of academic department to cost centre mappings, the minimum requirement for such a return is that for each mapping, the fields AcademicCostCentres.ACCENTRE, AcademicCostCentres.DEPARTMENT, AcademicCostCentres.PROPACC and AcademicCostCentres.PROPDEPT must all be returned.
